Under $2000 Star Citizen Ready Rig

3 posts in this topic

After 100's of hours of practice in Star Citizen we have realized that, particularly in dogfighting, having a system that can run Star Citizen at 60fps or above, keeps you competitive in the game. Having said that, Ive put together a computer setup that I know would give you the best experience per dollar amount, while trying to keep pricing reasonable.
